Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.
For those who have been speaking up and asking questions, you are likely to discover a new reality that cuts away at the deceits of the PAP. You will discern the truth behind the patina and understand how the ruling party had manipulated, deceived, and enslaved the population.
The PAP managed to convince most Singaporeans of a lie – that it had the best brains Singapore could offer, that the prospects for a better Singapore depended on channelling resources through it, and that a single-party rule was the most efficient way to help the majority of the people – when in fact the truth is that the system it created enriched only a very few at the expense of the many. This lie, and the resulting exploitation, will continue unless Singaporeans are prepared to speak the truth.
